Counselling & Psychotherapy in Surry Hills
Break Free From Obstacles Holding You Back
Paul Jozsef Counselling & Psychotherapy provides psychological and emotional health support for anxiety issues.
My name is Paul. I’m a counsellor based in Surry Hills, Sydney. I specialise in working with couples experiencing difficulty in their relationship. I see couples, whether married or de facto, in straight or same-sex relationships, as well as, for pre-marital counselling.
couples/marriage/relationship counselling helps gain insight into negative patterns, helps prevent conflicts and repairs old emotional wounds.
All relationships are unique with their own set of complex challenges. As relationships evolve over time, it is not uncommon for couples to feel emotionally overwhelmed when trying to balance a healthy relationship with the stressors of everyday life.
I work with couples that may have gotten bogged down in unhelpful patterns and are having difficulty communicating effectively. It is not uncommon for couples to become trapped in endless circular arguments that begin with a minor disagreement and then rapidly escalate into heated confrontations over the same issues with no resolution. couples/marriage/relationship counselling provides the opportunity to help couples understand what is blocking them from being able to move forward, in a solution-focused way, to resolve their relationship issues.
What is couples/marriage/relationship counselling?
The ‘aim’ of relationship/couples/marriage counselling is to help you explore, understand and change the issues that are affecting you as a couple. couples/marriage/relationship counselling helps you and your partner express your relationship needs, worries, or conflicts in a neutral and comfortable setting. During relationship counselling, the focus is generally on identifying where and when communication has broken down and learning how to prevent arguments from turning into full-blown, nasty fights.
Common reasons people come to couples/marriage/relationship counselling:
- You are fighting over the same issues all the time, or having escalating fights
- You are not able to air your issues, talk about, and resolve them
- There are more and more silences between you
- You are purposely spending less time together
- You are thinking about developing, or have developed, an interest with someone outside of your relationship
- You are intentionally focusing more time on the kids than each other
- You are having little or no sex
couples/marriage/relationship counselling can help break the negative cycle, find common ground and renew your relationship.
My practice is conveniently located in Surry Hills, a short walk from Central train station.
